Hands-On With The $1,200,000 Antoine Preziuso Trillion Tourbillon Of Tourbillons 24-Carat Diamond Watch

Back in 2015 watchmaker Antoine Preziuso appeared an exceptionally intriguing $300,000-in addition to very good quality watch with a lofty sounding name; the Antoine Preziuso Tourbillon of Tourbillons watch . The whole purpose of the craftsman made extravagance mechanical watch was to introduce three turning tourbillons on the actual dial, which additionally spun like a tourbillon. The enlivened impact of just taking a gander at the dial moving merited the “exclusive” requesting cost for the best from complicated mechanical watch authorities. In 2016 Antoine Preziuso presented a considerably more exact variant with a rearranged case in the Chronometer Tourbillon of Tourbillons . For 2018 this selective watch is made significantly fancier with precious stones in the Antoine Preziuso Trillion Tourbillon of Tourbillons watch that I take a gander at involved here today.

The Antoine Preziuso Trillion Tourbillon of Tourbillons incorporates around 24 carats of great Wesselton precious stones working on this issue and dial. Notwithstanding the enormous roll cut precious stones working on this issue there are three obvious “trillion-cut” three-sided jewels on the dial which are exquisitely mounted to encourage light reflection and move with the dial that makes one full revolution at regular intervals. This comes in at a sticker price more than 1,000,000 dollars.

At 47mm wide (and 14mm thick) the Antoine Preziuso Trillion Tourbillon of Tourbillons is in 18k white gold however as a general rule in the event that you request this watch, they will create it for you in whatever metal you like (gold or something else). Despite the fact that gold will make for the most proficient material as to this jewel setting which presents the defense material really hard to see. While I appreciated the complex case plan of the first Tourbillon of Tourbillons watch from a couple of years prior, this streamlined case is absolutely more tasteful for additional settings. All the mechanical interest of the development is kept up in the perspective on the very much completed movement.

Antoine Preziuso says that 233 roll cut precious stones enrich the case while another 21 jewels embellish the crown. That incorporates one enormous solitaire jewel mounted in the crown as distinguishable from the dial. More precious stones enrich the tie clasp, and obviously there are the three “trillion-cut” jewels on the dial which are 0.76 carats each in size. As I said over, the Trillion Tourbillon of Tourbillons has more than 24 carats of precious stones which is obviously important for the enormous estimation of the watch. All the more in this way, the stones should be deliberately gained, at times cut, and obviously arranged and set into the case, which itself is a complex and tedious interaction. This comment is significant on the grounds that the estimation of a jewel brightened watch of this type is identified with more than the sheer market estimation of the valuable stones themselves.

I additionally need to add that this is one of those more uncommon super extravagance watches with jewels that all things considered remaining parts manly in character. Sure it shines and shimmers as any jewel set watch ought to, yet the roll cut state of the case-mounted precious stones and their size add a manly appeal to something that numerous individuals discount as being carefully ladylike. On that note I will say that there are a decent number of masculine jewel looks out there.

Let’s return to the development since it is unmistakably why a genuine watch darling would be keen on the Trillion Tourbillon of Tourbillons watch in any case. Antoine Preziuso is one of the “old guard” ace watchmakers who helped the cutting edge watch pattern begin during the 1990s and 2000s. His cutting edge style and dismissal for plan customs acquired him and his group both recognition and debate over the years.

The development inside the Trillion Tourbillon of Tourbillons is the in-house made type AFP-TTR-3x physically twisted mechanical development with 48 hours of force hold and three tourbillons each running at a recurrence of 3Hz (21,600 bph). No particular precision guarantee is referenced, however this a similar development in the Chronometer Tourbillon of Tourbillons, which as the name suggests, has a COSC Chronometer rating. The development is comprised of 570 sections and is complex in view of how it functions as well as fills in as a solid time teller.

The development has two origins coupled in arrangement to bring to the table the force, which I have an inclination is likely exceptional. To get three one-minute tourbillons to work as well as to turn the whole dial once evert 10 minutes no uncertainty requires critical power. That implies despite the fact that 48 hours of force save doesn’t appear to be a luxurious sum, I have an inclination that in a “normal” mechanical watch, the heart force would offer numerous long periods of operational energy.

Each of the tourbillons is associated with the primary extraordinary train by means of a complicated “planetary triple-differential gear.” The thought is that the rate consequences of every one of the guideline organs (the tourbillons which are escapements that turn all alone) are found the middle value of out. Antoine Preziuso calls this “tourbillon resonance” on the development yet I don’t think this is the right utilization of “resonance” at any rate regarding horology. Hypothetically these coupled tourbillons should additionally build exactness accepting the actual development is appropriately controlled and changed. Antoine Preziuso further advises us that the development contains three global licenses with respect to its activity and construction.

To hold the watch together the case is fitted with eight high-pressure titanium screws which associate from the bezel to the caseback. On the back of the watch you can see the development showed through the sapphire gem window. What I appreciate most is that Antoine Preziuso didn’t quit with the dial-side of the development as far as appealing plan or wrapping up. The development back isn’t just generally even, yet additionally shows a large group of cleaning and completing surfaces which are an enjoyment to admire.

The words “passion, tolerance, and perseverance” are engraved on the rear of the watch also. I regularly wouldn’t comment on “brand terms” put onto a watch, however for this situation I discovered the explanation to be remarkably recounting the characteristics any genuine autonomous watchmaker (or any inventive individual so far as that is concerned) should bear and exemplify to create results, for example, the Trillion Tourbillon of Tourbillons watch.

The Antoine Preziuso Trillion Tourbillon of Tourbillons is an intriguing watch since it the two offers to admirers of colorful mechanical executions just as opportunists who appreciate materials, for example, jewels. While there are different items like this out there (I mean, not actually like this) most extravagance watches at this level either center around mechanics or thickly various extravagance materials –and not often both.

My just complaint is identified with the hands on the dial which are pleasantly estimated yet don’t contrast enough to be clear. I don’t know anybody anticipating getting this watch is worried about that, however I think with slightly more difference, this extravagance thing will yell “watch” slightly more and less “wild extravagance system for the wrist,” which I think will help it further appeal to horological perfectionists. Regardless, this is a really astonishing item and no doubt these photos are the solitary spot you, my dear peruser, will actually see a brief look at such a watch. Cost for the Antoine Preziuso Trillion Tourbillon of Tourbillons watch is 1,200,000 CHF. antoine-preziuso.com
